The Metropolitan Police Commissioner, Sir Paul Stephenson, says the reputation of the entire police service has been damaged by Commander Ali Dizaei -- the senior officer sentenced to four years in prison yesterday for corruption.

Speaking on the Today programme, former deputy assistant commissioner at the Metropolitan Police Brian Paddick said when he worked with Dizaei he saw him as a "likable rogue rather than a criminal" who at times could be "very aggressive and confrontational".
